Grand build’s attention to detail
Frithsden Construction completed a Georgian period-style newbuild with heritage vertical sliders supplied by Quickslide.
The 5,500ft2, five-bedroom brick-and-block build in Little Gaddenden, Herts, was created over three floors using Flemish handmade bricks for the outer wall: just one example of the attention to detail paid to the design and build by Frithsden Construction’s husband-and-wife team Anthony and Julie Hayes.
The Hayeses admit they are obsessed with not only the details but also practicality, which is why they chose Quickslide for their full-height period-style windows.
Quickslide supplied heritage wood grain-effect vertical sliding sash PVCU windows for the project. The Hayeses originally wanted timber windows, before discovering the woodgrain effect PVCU sash made an energy-efficient, secure and low maintenance modern alternative. In particular, they praised the authentic look of the woodgrain effect and run-through horn details.
Frithsden Construction have been buying from Quickslide for five years, having first discovered the fabricator after researching extensively for a quality supplier that was both competitively priced and offering good aftercare and warranty.
Frithsden highly recommended Quickslide on completion of the project, not just for its quality products, but for the whole buying process, which they commended as being straightforward and easy, praising sales manager Jess in particular.
“Our customer service is as important to us as our products,” Quickslide’s chairman Adrian Barraclough said. “Since we established and popularised the PVCU vertical slider as a real alternative to traditional timer sash windows, more and more customers are discovering our heritage windows give them exactly what they need: authentic, traditional looks coupled with low maintenance, comfortable modern living.”
